Here's something I overheard on an airplane recently. It still makes me laugh. We had just pulled up to the gate and heard that little bell sound so we were gathering our belongings, starting to stand up ... you know the routine. And here is what I heard from a few rows behind me:
Man #1 (nicely but with urgency): Sir, sir, excuse me, sir! You are hitting her in the face with your stuff.
Man #2 (polite with a hint of embarrassment): Oh, I am so sorry. Really, I am very sorry. I didn't realize what I was doing.
Woman (sounded fairly young and sweet): Oh, it's okay. Don't worry about it. It was soft and didn't hurt much.
Man #3: It's okay. She's cute. Probably happens to her all the time.
Me (to myself): What in the world?
